Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting the background trees, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
These background trees still need some additional snow, so we'll do that next.…I want to keep some of the contrast that separates these trees from the…foothills, so I'm not going to cover them up entirely with snow.…I just want to show that the top branches are getting as much snow as you might expect.…This little tree is more in the foreground, so I'm going to give it more snow.…Sorry for the long silences, but in this part of the project I am repeatedly…painting the same sort of thing, and although it's important to put the time in…to get this looking right, there isn't much I can say about it, or more details…that I can add about my process.…
You just need to go through and do it, wherever this landscape needs additional snow.…Again, since this is in real time, there will be some sections with…just extended painting.…I'm going to use that Foliage brush again to break up the edges on this roof.…And I'm going to add some more snow to the top of these shrubs to give them a…little bit more form.…
